ACCESSORIES REPORT: Timeless and Trendy

Accessories Report

Much of today’s fashion is reminiscent of the fashion that we might have gotten to experience as teens in the late ’90s and early 2000s. As a child at this time, I remember growing up with bright colors, baggy jeans and really awesome graphic tees. For the older generations at this time who were able to really savor the fashion trends, it was all about pairing the tight-fitting with the loose-fitting and the bright with the dark.

One thing that I will certainly never forget are the classic choker necklaces that most notably came in interesting henna patterns and usually had a small charm or colorful beads. If you are from Generation Y like me, choker necklaces were most likely what all the cool people wore, and they were the must-have accessory. Small necklaces today no longer look as they traditionally did during the Gen Y-er’s youth but instead taken on new interesting looks.

This week’s Fashionista wears a very simple yet charming bead choker. This choker is very attention grabbing especially as it is layered with longer necklaces. This play in lengths is very interesting and fresh if you are not quite sure how to wear your necklace solo. This Fashionista is not afraid to play with lengths as she pairs her turquoise shark tooth necklace and silver key necklace with her choker. The most intriguing part about her key necklace might be how real the key looks and how it might even be an actual key, however most likely not the key to her heart. The best part about all these necklaces is how they seem to tell a detailed story.

Her black fringe cross-body bag is also the perfect bag for her outfit which gives it an air of boho chic meets ’90s. These accessories are perfect for any adventurous and young spirit who loves telling stories beyond what meets the eye.

Spotted: If you love the choker necklaces as much as we did and still do, make sure to check out the Christian Dior resort 2011 show for a fun spin on the choker.
